How to Celebrate Valentine's Day When You're Single and Alone

Don't be that desperate chick who sends herself flowers on Valentine's Day so nobody thinks she's desperate. (Unless your self is into that, in which case do what makes your self happy.) Send some chocolates instead and follow these instructions for a lovely Valentine's Day alone.

Start by preparing yourself a fine Italian meal for one.

While your lasagna is in the oven, have some wine.

Don't forget the veggies.

When the food is ready, light a few candles and have a nice romantic dinner by yourself.

Indulge in a fine Italian dessert. Enjoy knowing you don't have to fight over the last bite.

After dinner, stretch out on the couch and watch a movie. Choose a classic romance like The 40 Year-Old Virgin or Zach and Miri Make a Porno. (Netflix. You're welcome.)

Before bed, relax in a warm bath. Catch up on some reading.

In the true spirit of Valentine's Day, be sure to make yourself a morning-after breakfast tomorrow.

Remember, this isn't sad, this is independence! Savor it! One day you'll look back and remember the good old days before you had to worry about your cats smothering you in your sleep. (Don't have any cats yet? Adopt some!)

Happy Valentine's Day, ladies!
